Student Addresses

Students must provide the University with their current local (Columbia) and permanent addresses at the time of registration for each semester and subsequently of any change of address within 48 hours after the change.   Students need to update their local (Columbia) and permanent addresses under Personal Information from their student center via myZou.

In cases where official written notification of the student is required (e.g., disciplinary hearings), the University’s obligation of notification will have been satisfied when the notification is made to the current address listed under the student’s Personal Information in myZou.

The University will also issue official electronic mail addresses (Email) to all incoming students. For any official mailings, the latest postal address or University electronic mail address will be used, thereby fulfilling the University’s obligation of notification.

Ellis Library also requires notification of a change of a student’s mailing address.
